A transdisciplinary approach on the energy efficient retrofitting of a historic building in the Aegean Region of Turkey
Abstract Buildings account for 40% of total energy consumption in the European Union, yet at the same time they have considerable energy saving potentials. Historic buildings should be treated different from contemporary ...
Performance indices of soft computing models to predict the heat load of buildings in terms of architectural indicators
(Yıldız Technical University, 2017-08)
This study estimates the heat load of buildings in Izmir/Turkey by three soft computing (SC) methods; Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), Fuzzy Logic (FL) and Adaptive Neuro-based Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) and compares ...
Investigation of indoor microclimate of historic libraries for preventive conservation of manuscripts. Case Study: Tire Necip Paşa Library, İzmir-Turkey
Conservation of library collections requires an interdisciplinary approach. Dealing with the agents of deterioration via curative and preventive conservation methods has become a significant goal with new standards and ...
The importance of internal heat gains for building cooling design
(Yıldız Technical University, 2017-01)
This paper aims to investigate the effect of internal heat gains on the cooling load of a building. The house occupied by three adult men is selected as the case study for paper. The house is in the third floor of the ...
On the relation between architectural considerations and heating energy performance of Turkish residential buildings in Izmir
By considering the energy efficiency legislations among the European Union, Turkey is responsible to provide regulations to comply for the latest European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive 2010/31/EC. New legislation ...
Comparative study of a building energy performance software (KEP-IYTE-ESS) and ANN-based building heat load estimation
The several parameters affect the heat load of a building; geometry, construction, layout, climate and the users. These parameters are complex and interrelated. Comprehensive models are needed to understand relationships ...
